  • Kkr Mentor David Hussey Termed This Player As The Best Buy In The Ipl

KKR Mentor, David Hussey termed this player as the "Best Buy In The IPL"

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are off to a decent start in the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) with two wins in three matches. What stood out in these performances is the new ball bowling of Umesh Yadav who has been impeccable with the control of line, length and speed, throughout the competition.

Umesh, who's making a comeback for KKR, trained himself with Bharat Arun for a few years now, during the latter's India stint and the duo is generating magic yet again.

David Hussey has gone to the extent of terming the pacer as "best buy" of the IPL 2022 mega auction as the veteran went under the hammer for INR 2 crores.

“He's probably been the best buy in the IPL. He has been outstanding upfront taking early wickets. Him and [Bharat] Arun work very well together, they have worked together for 5-6 years now. They have got a good respectful relationship. One thing I will say about Umesh is that he works extremely hard on the track to be prepared for each game. In his words, he says he feels no pressure because he's got a lot of support from all the background staff and full credit goes to Arun for being one of the better people and one of the better bowling coaches going around.” Said Hussey.

Umesh is currently the Purple Cap holder with 8 scalps in just 3 matches at a remarkable economy rate of 4.9.

The Indian pacer was warming the bench for team India. He has endured tough times due to limited opportunities to showcase his skills and talent but has delivered every time when an opportunity went his way. The 34-year-old will be looking to continue his brilliant form as the competition progresses.

KKR has their next match against their arch-rivals, Mumbai Indians on April 6, 2022.
